How light is conveyed from the Sun or fire without stops. Light is easlier admitted into black than reflected from it, for hold a paper twixt you & light with a black spot in it & it is blacker when towards you, than when to the light. Light cannot be by pression for then wee should see in the night as wel or better than in the day we should se a bright light about us becaus we are pressed downewards . The sun would be long nay far greater. ther could be no refraction since the same matter cannot presse 2 ways, the \* sun could not be quite eclipsed the Moone & planetts would shine like sunns. A man goeing or running, would see in the night. When a fire or candle is extinguish we lookeing another way should see a light. The whole East would shine in the day time & the west in the night by reason of the flood which carrys our. Vortex a light would shine from the Earth since the subtill matter tends from the center. a \* little body interposed could not hinder us from seing pression could not render shapes so distinct. There is the greatest pression on that side of the earth from the ☉ or else it would not move about in equilibrio but from the ☉, therefore the nights should be lightest. Also the Vortex is Ellipticall therefore light cannot {illeg} come from the sone directly &c Continue reading… Index 1 Of light see pag 82 Continue reading…
